I got Almace. This sword is awesome. And I finally killed that griffin. Romancing Mercedes is taking forever. How much cloudwine do I have to give this chick before she starts glowing?
What class are you?

fighter. I was thinking of changing to assassin or mystic knight, but I'm really liking the skills I have. heavenward lash, burst strike, and steel will. My main pawn is a strider, but I think I might change her to magic archer because the skills look pretty awesome.

Mystic Knight is best class. It's crazy OP and you still get most of the sword skills from fighter. Do you have dark arisen? The mace you can get there can go up to 3000 damage at full upgrade. And then you can buff your own weapon to make it even stronger. Its to the point where I can waste around 2 full health bars in one swing.

Mystic knight doesn't have heavenward lash or steel will, though.

And no, I don't have Dark Arisen, but I intend to get it at some point.

How often do you use them though?

Are they really the staples of your guy?

My MK has Blink strike ( Dark arisen upgrade ), antler toss, and magic canon.

I try to remember to use steel will as often as possible, but I do tend to forget. Heavenward lash is useful against harpies, but jumping and hitting Y does work pretty well. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if Ai didn't have those skills, but I do still like them. I dunno.

Seeing as how you can switch at any time its worth a try. Although you'd probably have to actually level up in MK because the first level or so doesn't really have any amazing skills. But its like that with every class

Woah, fuck Almace. I just got undulant sword. Time to get some forgeries of dappled ore. It sure is lucky that I just killed a golem and got a piece. Perfect freaking timing.

Oh, never mind undulant sword. I maxed it out but I leveled up silver rapier to level two and it's already better. Too bad, cuz undulant sword looks cooler.

The most useful skills to me anyway

Sword/mace:
Antler toss
Blink strike
Great magic canon: creates a giant orb that, when struck, fires of clusters of homing energy balls. Pretty nice against flying enemies.

Shield:
Abyssal Anguish: Enchants weapon with dark and adds a ripple/shockwave effect that basically turns one swing into like three.
Holy grace: Can convert blocked damage into health.
Holy Trance: Holy enchantment for self and party.

Also, I don't just like MK for the moveset, but for the amazing weapon. In the DLC there's a mace that when upgraded, does 2000 base damage. Add that to strength and abyssal anguish and other buffs and I've been able to kill endbosses in seconds

Pretty good finds in Cash Converters (UK second hand chain) this week. Picked myself up Legend of Zelda for the NES for £12 and Super Mario World for SNES for £8. There were a few gems I didn't get because I'd spent enough. DK64 for £12, Super Mario All-Stars for £8 and a Dreamcast which looked near spotless compared to the old one in store which was yellowed beyond belief alongside Sonic Adventure.

I couldn't get into Dragons Dogma, I really wanted to like it, but it just didn't do anything for me, which is a shame because I enjoy the demo.

I'll have to give them a go then. How are the other games, Apollo Justice and Miles Edgeworth or whatever?

I've been playing FTL and Metroid Prime. FTL is pretty frustrating because the rebel flagship is just so fucking hard, and the chances of getting a new ship are slim so every playthrough is pretty much the same. Prime is starting to get good now that I have several beams.

You need to mod FTL to get the best experience. There's a few mods that fix a lot of the balancing issues.

I'm playing the Dishonored DLC after picking it up for $3 during the summer sale and it's very good. I wasn't expecting much, but I'm actually enjoying it a lot. Arkane just announced the next DLC for an August release so I'll pick that up for sure.

Any mods you'd recommend? Mods for this game never even crossed my mind. I probably still try to beat it vanilla first though.

I can't find the mod I played... forget what it was called. It mainly changed the randomness of finding items and shops so you wouldn't end up with complete shit in some playthroughs. It also made the difficulty more gradual by the end of the game. There are some other cool mods I haven't tried that change the graphics and sometimes story in the game to be suited for things like Halo, Mass Effect, Star Trek, Star Wars, etc.

I bought the bundle earlier today. No idea why as usually I don't care for the bundles that aren't focused on games but I wanted to check out the music and I also wanted to watch Indie Game: The Movie.

Literally just got done watching the movie now. The credits are still rolling. If anyone hasn't seen this, I highly recommend it. It was just really cool to get a look into what life is like for the people developing these games that we've seen all over the internet. Sometimes I guess it's just hard to believe that games like that are made by one or two regular guys. Admittedly, they're regular guys who have a lot of passion and talent but still, it's sort of inspiring in a sense.

I've developed (shit) games in the past as projects for uni or whatever. I even started working on a game in my free time and gradually just lost interest in it. Now I kind of want to actually finish making a decent game. Well, decent by my standards. Convenient timing for that bundle to pop-up though, because the past few days I've actually been reading up on game programming type stuff most of the day, so this has sort of given me a bit of extra inspiration to actually make something.

Well I recently got Deadpool and completed it. It was okay at best and I blasted through the campaign in about five to six hours. There are challenges afterwards, but I'm not even mildly interested in them. If you like the humor and style of Deadpool, then you're in for a treat.

Also just got myself a nice little below $600 gaming PC and I've yet to put it together, but along with the processor I got (AMD) it came with a deal for redeeming two games off of Steam, I believe. And I was surprised that they were actually decent games that I actually didn't own. Tomb Raider and Crysis 3. Can anyone tell me much about these two games?

Playing through a game I recently discovered called Kurovadis. Basically a Metroidvania with Rpg elements and a hentai presentation + eerie atmosphere and surprisingly fantastic music.

Kinda pumped for Shadowrun Returns, can't help feeling like they're gonna drop the ball though and change too much or neglect important mechanics such as ammo/inventory management, weapon modification, etc

Been incredibly busy this week and haven't posted much, hope everyone is still making progress on their backlogs.

I've been slowly progressing on Jade Cocoon by the way, I'm determined to start 2 at some point during August. I WILL finish the first one soon!

Quake wasn't focused on multiplayer until Quake III, the original Quake is very similar to Doom in every way.

I've only played Quake 3, and that must have been at least ten years ago. I remember having fun with it, though.

The original UT and UT 3 are both fantastic multiplayer shooters.

I'd definitely choose Doom over Wolfenstein 3D. But I might like Duke Nukem 3D a bit more than Doom.

Decided to play Metroid today. Made it to Mother Brain with not much trouble at all but this final battle is frustrating me now that I'm tired. My goal for tomorrow is to beat that game and post a photo of the ending screen as proof.

MUST BEAT THIS GAME!
